REAL-LIFE RO­MANCE

Elle (Canada) - - Elle Letters -

I could re­late to the au­thor’s romcom ex­pec­ta­tions in “Fu­tile Fan­tasy” [ELLE Re­la­tion­ship, July 2014]. I, too, am a life­long fan of movies where hap­pily-ever-af­ter end­ings await me as cheesy mu­sic fills my liv­ing room and slow-mo­tion stares linger on­screen. Who wouldn’t want the per­son they’ve se­cretly been in love with for the past 90 min­utes to put them up on a pedestal and adore them at the ex­act per­fect mo­ment? Ha! Like the au­thor and her hus­band, my boyfriend and I also use do­mes­tic du­ties to not only show af­fec­tion but also try to make ev­ery day count. Thought­ful­ness and ap­pre­ci­a­tion can be sexy, and I think once you’re past the hon­ey­moon—or romcom—stage, you need that prom­ise to each other to help your love grow. Roll cred­its. ME­LANIE, BURLING­TON, ONT.
